It is not to bad if you do it yourself,but the part may only be available with the fuel assembely.

I replaced fuel pump on my 2001 Ford escape and gas guage showed I had gas but I was on empty, what to do

Hi Gloria,did you replace your fuel pump with a oem one,or a after market one,the oem one has a fuel sending unit on it to tell you your gas level,always best to use a oem one,cost more but....they work.

My 97 mountaineer fuel guage always reads full

You should try to reset the fuel gauge. If it doesn't work, then the sensor might be bad. Go to the nearest auto shop to see about getting it fixed or even replaced.

Chevy jmpala 03 gas gauge doesnt work

unfortunatlly the fuel gas guage is located on the side of your fuel pump.located inside of the gas tank. it's called the fuel sending unit,if you choose to call an autozone or advance auto parts store,you'll know what to ask for price of. they do not sell only the sending unit,you have to purchase the entire fuel pump. which stinks in my opinion. you can find the entire pump used,but thats used. most parts places will guarantee the used fuel pump,but not the labor to replace order to replace it,the gas tank will have to be removed.and alot of garages guage the cost of replacement on how much fuel is in the tank at the time of removal. in other words,the more the fuel,the more the cost. i can recommend a used parts place thats assisted me in the past and reliable,they also ship parts to your front door. but these are used parts only,and they do guarantee the part to work. call 1-865-690-4223 or 1-865-690-4607 in knoxville tn. they offer a wide choice of rebuildable wrecks and used auto parts nationwide and will ship to your door any parts you request.thank you for choosing!

Odometer and fuel guage not working

on many buicks and impalas there is a problem with the wire resistors falling off the circuit board! You will see four resistors upper right if any of these has fallen off they need to be replaced, Good news is you can replace them yourself ! go to your electronic supply store and buy 151 surface resistors and replace them ! These are 50 ohm and don't get hot and fall off. use a 15 watt soldering iorn. Don't want it to hot! Repace all 4 and wala it should lifgt back up! Douglas Noack

Fuel Sending Unit

You do need to replace the guage sending unit in the gas tank, u must remove the gas tank, this is not really a job for a DIYer.

Gas gauge not working property

Pontiac has a problem with the sender for the fuel guage. A quart of transmission fluid in a full tank of gas usually fixes it. The "engine" light, won't be on because of that. Quite often that is the air filter or fuel cap.

My gas gage in my 1997 buick lasabre does not work. So I am unable to know if I need gas. What will it cost to repair

The gas tank will have to pulled out and the fuel guage sending unit replaced, they sell just the sender in the aftermarket, DORMAN Part # 692087 $115.00, the GM dealer sells only the entire module, $384.00, the labor is time around 2 hours.

Fuel gauge

there is a sending unit in the tank this has probably clogged or wore out it has a filter on it, with gas debries this will make your guages stop working correctly

replace sending unit by dropping tank with gas out of tank and then pull out sending unit replace with new one
